The Orchid Sessions – the off-site, on-the-day wedding coordinator. Picture this:

You’ve organised the majority of your wedding plans. The perfect photographer has been booked. Gorgeous flowers have been arranged. Your venue stylist has a Pinterest board to DIE for. This wedding day is shaping up perfectly. Basically, you’ve spent MANY months working on your exceptional wedding day & you’re excited.

This is where The Orchid Sessions can help…

The Emerald Sessions

Introducing The Emerald Sessions – the 1-day wedding planner.

You need the tools to plan in confidence.

Your thoughts are in a tangle.

There’s complete overwhelm by all the choices available.

Consequently, you can’t see the wood for the trees.

Moreover, you need to know that everything is in place to ensure your day goes off without a hitch.

Then this will help. A full day of wedding planning with myself, dedicated to getting your plans on track, whatever stage in the process you’re at.

This is it. This is for YOU. Learn more below.

On the day coordination

This is a bit of a misleading name because I actually work with you for WAY more than 1 day! Once you have booked my services, my active role of working for you starts 8 weeks before your wedding day.

For each vendor that you have booked, I check contracts for you, then create workable timelines for payments& delivery, taking all the stress from your shoulders.

Basically, I act as the first point of contact, to reduce stress & admin levels in the final weeks of your engagement. This can be for both vendors & guests if you would like to keep them from overloading you.

THEN WHAT HAPPENS?

Then on the day itself, I insist that you have your feet up, a glass of something chilled in your hand, getting excited about your wedding.

While you’re doing this, I’m at your venue, coordinating like a boss.

  • Coordinating arrivals of external vendors such as food trucks or toilets.
  • Greeting & directing suppliers to ensure correct placement of items.
  • Assisting them in creating a stunning space if they need support. I’m always happy to get stuck in where needed!
  • Ensuring all public areas are guest-ready.
  • Greeting guests and directing them to their seats.
  • Answering questions.
  • Ensuring everything is going to plan & to time.
  • Announcing you into the room under your married / preferred name.
  • Liaising with the caterers to ensure the food is ready at the agreed time.

All this & then there’s still more?!

Finally, I will continue to manage the day until your first dance / 8pm, at which point I quietly slip away, knowing that I’ve created yet another fabulous, stress-free day for my couple.

At each part of planning, you hand over the searching & scrolling for suitable suppliers. But please rest assured, only YOU will make the decisions on who to book. I never presume to employ anyone’s services on your behalf, it’s completely YOUR choice. I will do all the administrative duties while giving you regular updates on the progress.

First, for each vendor, I check contracts for you, then create workable timelines for payments& delivery, taking all the stress from your shoulders.

Then I act as first point of contact, to reduce stress & admin levels. This can be for both vendors & guests if you would like to keep them from overloading you.

Lastly, each quote is bespoke because each couple’s requirements & preferences are different. Please do ask me questions if you’d like to know further details on your specific wedding planning requirements. I love chatting about how I can support YOU.
